The Santa Cops program is an annual effort by the Firestone, Frederick and Dacono police departments to provide toys, clothing and gifts for children in the Carbon Valley area who may not otherwise have a gift during the holiday season.
Gifts and donations come to the Firestone Police Department to help provide gifts for children and sponsor families both in Firestone and unincorporated Weld County. Volunteers come together in December to wrap hundreds of gifts.
Beverly Medina, the Firestone Municipal Court Clerk and Santa Cops coordinator, said the annual program is a great opportunity for people in the area to provide for the kids. “The generosity bestowed upon the Carbon Valley Santa Cops program is a way for all of us to give to our community.”
